What a cv for "just" being a particulier secretaris. Looks way overqualified for the job but maybe Máxima has certain expectations.

I had to look up Sinologie.
Well, it will certainly be something new for drs. Wu and also look good on her cv for future use.

"Jaap Leeuwenburg, general secretary under Queen Beatrix (and briefly under WA) is stepping down as Chancellor of the House Orders. Bert Wassenaar, former stable master, will succeed him as of 1 March."

An obituary in the NRC announced the death of the 19 y/o son of Jhr. Frans de Beaufort. Frans is the godfather of Pss Alexia and a witness at the wedding of the King and Queen. The young man was a first year student at the University of Utrecht.

The obituary was signed by Alexander, Máxima, Amalia, Alexia and Ariane and used their first names only. The names of Marc ter Haar and Tijo baron Collot d'Escury (other two witnesses at the wedding) and their families were listed on the obituary too.

The mother of Frans, Cornélie (Corinne) de Beaufort, née Jkvr. Sickinghe was a governess of Beatrix and Irene. The two princesses were bridesmaids at her wedding in 1953. She died last year at the age of 98 in The Hague. Her niece Jkvr. Wilhelmina (Ina) Sickinge is married to a son of late president Valery Giscard d'Estaing.

The University campus provides councelling to those students that want to talk about the death and a condoleance register is opened at the campus. According to the Student Corps website, the student died after he went missing on tuesday. His house mates last saw him at 2:30PM.

"King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands is in mourning after the son of his best friend died. Jan de Beaufort, 19, died on 9 May. He was the son of the King’s best friend, Frans de Beaufort."

Those were the days when even gouvernantes were of the nobility. The mother of jonkheer Frans de Beaufort (the King's best friend, and witness, and godfather of Princess Alexia) was jonkvrouw Cornélie Jeanne Louise Mathilde ("Corinne") de Beaufort born jonkvrouw Sickinghe and indeed once a gouvernante to Princess Beatrix.


(Jonkheer/jonkvrouw is a predicate for untitled nobility, more or less comparable with Lord/Lady).

Did Mrs Beaufort remain an employee of the Royal family after the princesses had outgrown the need for her help? The Swedish Miss Björnberg (born into the nobility on the entailed Stora Djupsås Manor) entered the service of the family of Hereditary Prince Gustav Adolf as a nanny in 1938 and after that went through different positions as housekeeper/companion to Princess Sibylla, extra nanny to the children of her ward King Carl Gustav and ended her days as housekeeper of the Royal Palaces before passing away in 1994 after almost 60 years of devoted service.

No, she left the service upon her marriage -as was the custom in those days. She was replaced by Drs. Eléonore Françoise (Leonoor) Mees, of the Rotterdam branch of the patrician family. The latter got married in 1955 to Dr. Arnold Jacob (Ab) Teychiné Stakenburg and also stopped working for the court. The wedding reception in Schoonoord, Rotterdam was attended by Queen Juliana.

Untill 1955 all Dutch women would automatically get fired from a government-related job on the day of their wedding.

Princesses Margriet and Marijke (later Christina) had a French governess in 1951, named Mlle Jeanine Seston. She was from Paris and her father was Prof. William Seston, a professor of old history at the Sorbonne University.

The funeral took place yesterday (on queen Máxima's birthday) according to AD. In the afternoon, the king received Ukraine's Secretary of State/Minister of Foreign Relations. Weirdly, the Dutch Minister of Foreign Relations was on a trip to Israel at the same time.

The translation confused it somewhat.


The new Intendant of the Royal Palaces is Mr R.A.P. (Roger) Maas LL.M MBA.

The new indentant will be responsible for the Royal Palace in Amsterdam (for representation), Noordeinde Palace in The Hague (the official residence) and Huis ten Bosch in The Hague (the private residence). Also Het Oude Loo Castle in Apeldoorn (hunting lodge) as well the privately owned properties on the Royal Domain De Horsten in Wassenaar will be under his eye.

Also the organisation and maintenance of inventories in named properties as well the surrounding parks ressort under the new Indendant. There uses to be a special house for the Intendant of the Royal Palaces, to live with his family, ( this one is on the domain of Soestdijk Palace ) but I do not know if housing near Noordeinde or Huis ten Bosch still is part of the nice additional privileges of this function.
